and technical class. this is an oil based economy. the only thing that venezuela produces is oil. everything else the imports. chavez got into power and polarized the country, he attacked the elites and they left the country. the national oil company became politicized and suffer from low investment, declining production. the irony is that here is someone came in and had an opportunity to diversify the economy, to make it a more broadbased basis for economic growth and he is more reliant on the oil sector than ever. he is more reliant on the u.s. market than ever, even despite his attacks against the united states, so i think that is the question. he could have -- he clearly came in and had to exercise control. he pointed the country in a different direction. the country was in awful shape when he came in. the elites had filled the country, they were corrupt and mismanaged the country, they stole a lot of money. the problem was he antagonized the leads and he needed people with some professional, technical capacity to sustain the economic course of the country and that is what he lost. tavis
back to uncertainty. we want the economy to get better. we will like it to be better soon, as fast as it can happen. when that happens, then this competition for our best and brightest talent will go up. in that environment, i am concerned that as they are weighing -- not the personal threats to themselves which they are willing to take -- but when they are weighing the financial certainty for their families that they will come down on a different side than government service. that is an important question. we have an all volunteer military. it has been stressed. this is another stressor. we need to be mindful of this because we are competing for the best talent. we have been getting it. there are magnificent people that raise their right hand, civilian, uniform, or whether they serve as contractors. it does not matter. they are all working hard to do the right things. it is preserving that. there is an impact here with what is going on. it is coming to our level. they are telling us there is an impact on them, and we need to be mindful of it. >> general alexander, could you comm

economy, and bring down energy costs. the budget also promotes economic growth, job creation, supports research and development in the energy sector, and moves america to a more energy independent state. it expands oil and gas development, which could generate a half a million new jobs and $14.40 trillion in increased economic activity. by preventing or delaying domestic energy exploration, the obama administration has driven jobs overseas. in this budget, the house republicans in the subsidies, -- support for this budget translates into a response will plan to grow our economy and create jobs. i yield back my time. >> i would like to yield two minutes to the gentleman from indiana. >> thank you. what we are doing here today, people in america are hurting. too many parents have come home and tell their children they do not have a job. washington has refused to make the tough choices necessary to jump-start a healthy economy to create jobs and opportunity for every american. we hear a lot from the other side of the aisle about a balanced approach. there is not much balanced about a budg

(laughter) >> a different perspective, brenda. >> brenda: we are on cable, but, all right. gary b, are spending cuts responsible for this rally? >> i think so. certainly this week. you know, a lot of times we talk about things on the show that, you know, maybe a little bit inside baseball. maybe a little bit a wall street centric or capitol hill, but in this case sequester-- there's not a person out there that doesn't know about sequester, that's number one, people know about it. number two, do people think it's a big deal? absolutely. people aren't thinking the sequester is small even though it's relatively nothing people think it's huge and three, do people support it in the latest poll i saw, two-thirds of the people across the party support the sequester. so if you think, my gosh, d.c. is doing something that we support

later. >>> as a great economist in the british verse, the u.s. economy gets knocked down but gets up again, but the republicans try to keep it down. >>> the stunning new numbers on the economy today. >> hostage job gains. >> the private sector kicked in, in a big way. 236 thousand jobs added last month. >> 236 thousand. >> the nation's unemployment rate. >> fell two notches. >> 7.7%. >> this is a bit of a surprise. >> robust. >> because of a all the housing stuff we have been talking about. >> robust. >> the economy is moving in the right direction. >> the dow reaching record-high levels. >> that is great, right? >> that is good news. >> you know, the sequester has happened. >> how does that change the equation? the dire predictions that we have heard regarding the sequester? >> we need to do everything we can to avoid self-inflicting wounds. >> people are finally optimistic. >> but it has to be based on common sense. >> i would like to say that common sense has come out of the closet. >> bill clinton calls for an end to doma. >> former president bill clinton is having a change of he
blockbuster retail sales. this economy is stronger than you think. that may be a triumph. president obama says there's no immediate debt crisis. he thinks we're clear for the next ten years. sir, are you sure? we'll have the details four on that debate and doesn't forget free market capitalism is always the best path to ross peter. later in the show we'll show you a violation of it that blows my mind. i'm kudlow. we'll be right back. revolutionizing an industry can be a tough act to follow, but at xerox we've embraced a new role. working behind the scenes to provide companies with services... like helping hr departments manage benefits and pensions for over 11 million employees. reducing document costs by up to 30%... and processing $421 billion dollars in accounts payables each year. helping thousands of companies simplify how work gets done. how's that for an encore? with xerox, you're ready for real business. see lioutdoors, or in.ight. transitions® lenses automatically filter just the right amount of light. so you see everything the way it's meant to be seen. maybe even a little bett
this discussion many times. every time we cut taxes, the economy has grown whether on the left with president kennedy or left with reagan. the left said clinton raised taxes and what is often ignored, clinton cut the capitol gains tax and he cut spending as a percentage of gdp. the obama administration want to go the opposite way, if they do they will make fdr a libitarian. >> jamull is it good or bad for the economy? >> i don't think the president said that they should take a hike if the tax hikings don't happen. our biggest problem are the spending cuts . bigger than that are the job losses, and so i am going to talk about tax cuts, a huge one to see happen the government should give tax cut to companies so they can hire new workerings, spending cuts and focusing on the deficit, that is moving us in the wronging direction. if we want to talk about tax cuts, give the corporations that are sitting on records and the dow closed at record highs, give them a tax cut to hire new workers. >> toby, tax hikings are the issue here. this is what dems are calling for. is this the time with the recovery
of the economy, and that burst in hiring inspired investors. stocks were up again today making this a week of records for the dow jones industrial average. the dow rose 6 points closing at 14,397, another record high. the nasdaq added 12, the s&p edged up 7 points and this is the tenth straight friday of the year that the major market averages were up. so where are the new jobs? what sectors are still seeing weakness and what is the role of the federal reserve in the labor market? steve liesman has our report. >> reporter: a solid jobs report renewing hopes that the u.s. economy could be chugging along just fast enough to put americans back to work. economists are encouraged by thiseport but they're concerned that the strength may not last. that's why goldman sachs economist says the federal reserve is unlikely to change its easing monetary policy from this report alone. >> the question i think is more how many times months do you have to see to be convinced that is the underlying trend of job growth. if you have a long period at this kind of pace of course they would make some changes but
mean? >> it means that in ultimate terms that the economy is starting to gain traction, but it's still very slow traction. we do know that if you had the average amount of money a person has in a 401(k), $77,000, invested in the dow jones industrial average when it hit its all-time high five years ago, today you have basically not made a penny. in fact, you've lost money because inflation, though small, has eaten up more than that. you've made no money on dow jones. normally one would expect a return of 4% to 8% a year. the stock market has a long way to go. a lot more money is going into stocks. they seem to be paying better now than bonds and other debt instruments. that's very important. that's one thing. job growth is absolutely real. there's no question about it. unfortunately, when the sequester really starts to bite, about three months' worth of job gains, $250,000 per month or $750,000, will be lost. so unemployment will remain at the same level or increase just slightly in the united states if they don't settle this thing. and then finally, are we likely to have a recession be
, when is will be going to get credit for this amazing economy that's coming back? definitely coming back. maybe not like gang busters, but unemployment rate really dropped again today and a quarter million new jobs out there. stock market for the rich is going through the roof. when is this guy going on get some respect? bill clinton wrote an op-ed 15iing t15 saying the defense of marriage act should be overturned. he says not only did it provide an excuse it for the discrimination, the law itself is dts crimin discriminatory. big 180. and we'll be waiting for hillary clinton and when does she decide. we'll ask that. finally, what happens when you're too far right for even cpac to invite you? you charge them with being under the thumb of being under sharia law. as certified recovery specialists at lifelock, we're dedicated to getting you back on track from identity theft. to protect you from being a victim in the first place, we have specialists for that, too. ♪ [ alarm blaring ] ♪ [ lasers zapping ] ♪ yep. we make a pretty good team.

and then suddenly decline? in the early 19th century, america was predominately a farm economy. buildings were made of brick and wood. by the year 1900, we were a nation of steel. vast deposits of iron and coal fed the furnaces of pittsburgh. immigrants poured in from europe to work in the steel mills, part of an industrial miracle that was creating a better life. rapid productivity growth led to an improving standard of living. the miracle was not confined to the steel industry. american workers were the most productive in the world. what caused this phenomenal explosion of productivity? economist edward denison singles out one factor as paramount. the most important is advances in knowledge of how to produce at low cost. this includes technological knowledge and what you'd call managerial knowledge, how to run a business and organize it. actually, over a long period like 1929-1982, this accounts for almost 2/3 of the total increase. in agriculture, advances in knowledge led to new seeds, machinery, and chemicals and more crops from fewer workers. displaced farm workers migrated to the cities to m

the youth, do these numbers suggest, however, that the economy is better able today to stand on its own two feet without the help of monetary or fiscal stimulus, and is it better able today to withstand the federal budget cuts or spending cuts that are in the pipeline? >> well, the economy has been healing. we have been seeing a lot of recovery take place in the housing markets. we've worked in the homes that were built and we have been overcoming some of the head winds that we faced including cutbacks that already have been in place because of the phasing out of the recovery act. regarding the sequester i think just about all economists who have looked at it say it's bad policy. it imposes a set of indiscriminate cuts, will slow economic growth and job creation, the congressional budget office predicts it will reduce gdp growth by 0.6% and lower employment by 750,000 jobs, compared to where it otherwise would be, and it doesn't solve our long run problem. it does nothing to address the long run drivers of our deficit problems, which are health care costs for an aging population. >> reporte

security at this time is not the deficit. it is the economy. it is the lack of jobs. it is a future where the u.s. cannot compete with its global peers. this will bring us closer to that scenario. chairman ryan and i share wisconsin. this is a blue-collar county where people are proud of the work they do and they want to be working. but they are struggling. four years ago, 2000 employees lost their jobs. a company announced they were shutting down. we do not help them or america when we keep tax incentives for companies to ship jobs overseas instead of incentivizing companies to hire in wisconsin and in america. we do not help them when we cut programs and raise taxes on the middle class so we can lower the tax rates for the top earners in this country. that seems to be what we received in the budget that is on our guest today. budget should reflect values. what we need to do is focus on economic growth and how to get the people of america back to work. we need a real path to prosperity. when we invest in infrastructure, research, development, small business loans, we can increase competi

since the economy weakened in 2008. so now with the forced spending cuts that went into effect march 1st, people are going to see the smaller unemployment checks in just the next few weeks. the national employment law project says there's more to it than that. budget cuts will impact funding for state agencies making it tougher for the same group of people to find jobs and have the claims process to get money they are counting on. >> we can expect and understand what their response would be to getting those smaller checks. are we hearing their reaction? >> we talked to one person who is a philadelphia grandmother. she's worked for 30 years. she's been out of work since last march stretching every dollar to make ends meet while she's looking for a job. now she says she's looking at $200 less a month because of these cuts. she says that's not going to be enough to cover the basics anymore. she's so frustrated by these cuts from washington. she feels that this shows congress just not looking out for people like her. >> and are there concerns about the larger impact that these cuts could hav
. >> rose: great to see you. so how do you see the global economy? >> in a long-term slowdown. >> rose: yeah. >> i think unappreciated by most economists, mainly because they're not interested in the long-term. in the short term i have no strong view, no conviction. we seem to be muddling through quite reasonably given all the obvious problems rdz you worry about a number of things including the united states will never, ever, or you don't expect it to ever go back to the level of economic growth and gdp annually that it did in previous years. >> right. and i worry that the powers believe that it will. so clearly bernanke seems to believe it will go back to 3%, the good old days. >> rose: you don't think that's possible. >> well, the population, which is a huge input into gdp, its population times productivity. and or population plus productivity. and the population which often hit 1.5% while i was in america, has dropped all the way down to maybe 0.2, 0.3. and these are kind of official numbers adjusted for the fact that he work a little bit less each year. and women, who hardly worked back
of a balanced approach that protects the american economy, the ryan republican budget guts education, medical research, infrastructure and even public safety. the ryan republican budget would actually jeopardize the economic recovery. it wouldn't help it. and in case you're thinking it -- huge and painful cuts can buy an awful lot of deficit reduction, think again. instead congressman ryan's cuts will buy more tax breaks for the wealthiest among us. this budget isn't a serious attempt to reduce the deficit. meaningful deficit reduction will require shared sacrifice, including contributions from those who can best afford to contribute. today budget committee chairman patty murray will introduce a budget that reflects the principle of balance. senator murray's plan, the democratic plan, will cut wasteful spending, reduce the deficit and close tax loopholes that benefit the rich. and it will invest in the things that help our economy grow: education, preventive health care, worker training, roads and bridges. it will invest in a strong middle class. and unlike the ryan republican plan, it won't
